THE ORGANIZING BEHAVIOUR OF FAMILY EVENTS, BETWEEN      RURAL AND URBAN, PAST AND PRESENT

The present work aims to identify the main features of the family events’ organizing behavious in Romania, from a comparative perspective between the urban and rural area. The theoretical presentation, from a historical-anthropological point of view, of the role of these events in the life of individuals and the community they are part of, as well as of their way of organization and development, is followed by a secondary analysis of statistical data regarding the current situation of family events in Romania, before the pandemic, during the pandemic and after the pandemic, including the effects of the pandemic on the event organization field. Subsequently, the paper focuses on the applied approach, based on a qualitative research carried out through interviews with both event organizers and with people who have been the main actors in family events in the last three years (2020-2023).

Keywords: family events, rural area, urban area, pandemics.
